Theater Review: At Encores!, It’s a Bird … It’s a Plane … It’s Superman

21 March 2013 2:05 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Of the three musical revivals that Encores! presents each season, the second is usually the one with the fustiest book or spottiest score or dimmest commercial prospects. Since 2009, this middle position has been filled by Music in the Air, Fanny, Lost in the Stars, and Pipe Dream, titles far less known or likely to be seen elsewhere than first- or third-position offerings like Finian’s Rainbow, Bells Are Ringing, and On the Town — let alone Chicago, which transferred to Broadway in 1996 and is still running. In a way, that makes the middle show the one that comes closest to the heart of the Encores! mission of exposing underexposed works; by the same token, it’s usually the one most at odds with the need to entertain a contemporary audience.

Actor best known as the haughty department store supervisor Captain Peacock in the TV comedy Are You Being Served?

However, he will be best remembered for his longstanding characters in two popular BBC television comedy series – the sniffily priggish Captain Peacock in Are You Being Served? and the pompous retired policeman Herbert "Truly" Truelove, in Roy Clarke's Last of the Summer Wine.

Robertson Hare, the great Whitehall farceur, told him: "You'll never do any good until you're 40." And, said Thornton, "he was quite right." In the event, he was 51 when David Croft, producer of another long-running British staple, Dad's Army, remembered the tall, long-faced actor from another engagement and decided to cast him as the dapper floor-walker in charge of shop assistants played by Mollie Sugden, Wendy Richard, »
